In Kansas, the Segdwick County Sheriff’s Office has called off a request to the public to help find 29-year-old deputy Derick Chandler after they claim he has left the country.

What Happened

Last week, the SCSO requested assistance from the public to find Chandler who went missing after being named as a suspect in a child sex case. The Wellington Police Department and the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office would like to investigate Chandler in regards to accusations of sex crimes committed against a 13-year-old girl in Wellington. SCSO asked for the public’s help from their Facebook page on Tuesday.

Derick Chandler Was Charged With Child Abuse In 2013

Chandler was believed to have been seen driving in Wichita, Kansas on Monday in a 2015 White Dodge Charger with a black stripe. Investigators claimed Chandler may be a danger to himself or others. KAKE reported that in 2013 Chandler was charged with felony child abuse and aggravated battery in Sumner County, but those charges were dismissed several months later. Chandler was hired on as a detention deputy in October of 2017. In July of 2018 he was transferred to road patrol.

SCSO Lieutenant Tim Myers said the public’s help was no longer needed in locating Chandler. While Myers did not go into details on how the information was received, he did state “his location has been determined to be outside of the United States of America.”

Chandler’s location has been determined to be outside of the United States of America. We appreciate the assistance from the media and the citizens of Sedgwick County.
